Local World Time

I visited my AD yesterday and they have a VC World Time with "Doha" in the dial instead of "Reyadh" . I wanted to share the picture with you and also ask if this is common in other markets?

Sorry to confess that I don't keep up on modern changes to the world time cities, but you might find this related old post interesting: http://www.thehourlounge.com/en/vacheron-constantin-discussions/world-time-watch-another-vacheron-first-572025.

The cities named are a fascinating aspect of WT pieces for sure.  Hope someone has an answer for you smiley

I think you told me once that changing the dial to put a different city came under the Atelier Cabinotier section since it was a custom ized request.

But I guess Boutique editions are different.

It was an in-store boutique, not a stand a lone one. Unfortunaely, we do not have a VC stand alone boutique in Qatar :(. Maybe you can do something about it Alex.

I have a "thing" about world time watches, I'm fortunate to own Patek 5110 and a JLC Geographic and that VC would fit in rather well with my weeknesss

I have noticed your model has a red second hand.

Is it a special edition?

Thanks,

Hmmmm.... I did not notice that before. They told me that it is called "Doha edition" and so far they have three pieces. 

This is a 10 piece limited edition made specially for Qatar
